Emmanuel Frimpong. Remember him?

The 24-year-old midfielder is best remembered for his spell at Arsenal where he tried his hardest to get the word "Dench" into everyday lexicon.

Frimpong left Arsenal in 2014, moving to Barnsley on a permanent basis, after a brief loan spell. From Barnsley, the Ghana international moved to Russia to play with FC Ufa, where he stayed until April this year.

The former Arsenal midfielder eventually signed was Arsenal Tula in the Russian Premier League and made his debut at the weekend.

Such is Frimpong's obsession with the word "Dench", he decided to use the word on the back of his jersey. Sadly his bow for Arsenal Tula did not last long. A second half substitute, Frimpong was taken off in the last ten minutes due to a lack of fitness.

It's frightening how far someone will go to push a word, that nobody is even sure what it fully means.
